Here is your first glimpse of the £6m Aston Martin DBS GT Zagato

Remember when Aston Martin revealed it would be selling 19 continuation DB4GT Zagatos together with a new Zagato-bodied DBS Superleggera? Now, three months into the Milanese design studio’s centenary year, we’ve got our first glimpse of the latter. And we’re pleased to report it looks sensational…

Aston Martin has revealed renderings of its new DBS GT Zagato, a modern homage to the legendary DB4GT Zagato. For a princely £6m (excluding taxes), Aston’s DBZ Centenary Collection – of which just 19 will be sold – comprises this new DBS and a DB4GT Zagato continuation. For almost 60 years now, Zagato has been styling Aston Martins, from the seminal DB4GT to the brutish V8 Vantage and the voluptuous DB7. The dramatic design of the DBS GT Zagato is akin to the Vanquish Zagatos that precede it, though arguably with more oomph when it comes to the proportions – just look at the way that vast bonnet (complete with the DB4’s signature humps) expands outwards towards the gaping front grille. To our eyes, there are definite One-77 design cues in there, too. We’ll have to wait a little longer to see the finished car, most likely at one of Zagato’s centenary celebration events over the summer, and deliveries will commence early next year.
